Generate Trunk Utilization Reports
Only CAR administrators generate the Trunk Utilization report. This report calculates the utilization reports for devices based on the duration of calls that passed through the devices.
You can generate this report on an hourly, daily, or monthly basis. The system calculates the utilization of a trunk for each hour in the selected date range. For example, the system calculates the utilization of a trunk between 11hrs-12hrs, using the formula, (Sum of the duration of calls that used the trunk in that hour / (total seconds in an hour * maximum number of ports in a trunk * number of days between the fromDate and toDate selected) * 100).
Similarly, to get the utilization for each day in a week, the system calculates the utilization using the formula, ((sum of the duration of calls that used the trunk in a day) / (total seconds in each day * number of each day between the fromDate and toDate selected * maximum number of ports in a trunk) * 100).
In the case of monthly utilization reports, the system calculates the utilization for each day in a month, using the formula, ((sum of the duration of calls that used the trunk in a day) / (total seconds in each day * number of each day between the fromDate and toDate selected * maximum number of ports in a trunk) * 100).
Reports generate for each trunk that is chosen.
For calculation of the trunk utilization, the system uses the port numbers from the CAR Trunk Configuration window. To find this window, choose Unified Communications Manager database because the H.323 port number always equals zero in the database. The user must update H.323 trunk ports information in the CAR Trunk Configuration window.. You cannot take port details for H.323 trunks from the
Be aware that the only port detail information that is taken from the CAR Trunk Configuration window is only for those trunks that do not have port details that are available or that show zero in the Unified Communications Manager database.
